Tech Sunday

Reminder: Keegen's holding Skillz n Drillz tomorrow (Monday) evening at Allsopp at 6pm. This is the final Skillz n Drillz of the year.

I tried patching a latex tube with latex for the first time today.  Latex tubes are cool because they are lighter and less prone to pinch-flatting that butyl tubes.  But they are expensive and kind of finicky, and I never had luck patching them with normal patches.
Puncture came from a slashed tire sidewall, I think.  It was a sudden loud POP.

Donor tube.

Two layers of tube for patch.  Cleaned mating surfaces with acetone then applied rubber cement.

Et voila.  So far so good.
